Primestar plays a vital role in the Governmental sector by providing professional services with the latest technology, to ensure that the municipality is getting forward-thinking technology while maximizing their budget.
In years past, typical Commission Chambers audio/video systems were outdated even at installation as the overall approach was that “it’s just a meeting room and as long as they can hear the speakers, everything is fine.” The ideology was furthered when viewers would watch Governmental programming on C-Span, and the Standard Definition video quality as well as the less than stellar audio was considered the norm. But as pro-sumer technology became more affordable, many municipalities became aware of technologies that could make their facilities more efficient and provide expanded capabilities.

I.T. Department Support
Information Technology Departments are overwhelmed with the day to day responsibilities of ensuring that a municipal entity remains online. In some cases, the duty level has expanded from the typical phone, computer, networking, and security protocols, to venturing beyond typical I.T. certifications and diving into live streaming and broadcasting.
This can place additional strain on the department, as it may be improperly staffed, and this additional skillset requirement can throttle down the workflow as continuing education courses may be required to ensure that the streamed audio visuals meet the expectation of leadership.
As a contracted services vendor, our team of highly trained broadcast professionals work directly with IT managers and support staff, to ensure that the audio visuals exceed expectations as well as ensuring that a file redundancy system is in place to meet municipal regulations.
We do not compete with your I.T. Department, we compliment them!
